Effective immediately, the intersection at 16 Street North and 5 Avenue North will be closed so crews can continue to replace the watermain lines in this area.
Westbound traffic will be detoured to 6 Avenue North and eastbound traffic will be detoured to 5A Avenue North and 6 Avenue North. Motorists are asked to drive with caution in this area and follow posted speed limits.
Work along 5 Avenue North from 19 Street North to 23 Street North is expected to wrap up by Tuesday, September 4, which includes access to Immanuel Christian Elementary School.
The remaining work is expected to wrap up by Friday, September 28, weather permitting.
